Our own publication

After months of preparation we are proud to announce we have launched our first issue of our own bi-annual publication THE TRENCH on the 1st. November 2001.


Each issue will contain approx. 24-44 pages of information and photographs, printed in size A5 on high quality paper.
Contents of THE TRENCH will consist of a description of some of new acquisitions, relics we have discovered and retrieved from the various battlefields in Europe, and from time to articles written by some of our fellow collectors and enthusiasts. Basic rule is that the article should concern an item or event that is dated pré 1919, or is related in one way or another to the First World War. And last but not least articles on the so-called 'wannahaves'. Items that are not part of our collection yet, but certainly on our wish-slip.
